"The unicorn lived in a lilac wood. . . ."

The Last Unicorn is one of my favorite books -- a fairy tale that grows in depth and meaning with each re-reading. It's lyrical, dark, idealistic, and funny. And an animated movie was made from it in 1982.

I know a lot of people who found the story through the movie love the movie. Maybe they should skip the next bit.

Now Peter Beagle and friends are remaking it. They're not dissing the original film, but they're now able to make it look better and to include the whole story. The designs that are up already are lovely. The Unicorn herself brought tears to my eyes. Mommy Fortuna's Midnight Carnival looks eerie, dark, real. The costumes are just right. The storyboards show the blend of lyric beauty and smartass New York attitude that make the book so memorable.

I am so glad.
